LoadGroup Properties

The LoadGroup type exposes the following members.

Properties
  Name Description
Public property Color
The load group color. This variable indicates the color with which all loads that belong to this same group are drawn in Tekla Structures views.
Public property Compatible
This variable is used to store information on which groups are compatible with each other in structural analysis load combination. Load combination is a process in which some simultaneously acting load groups are multiplied by their partial safety factors and combined with each other according to specific rules. To accurately combine loads which have the same load group type, you need to identify which load groups can occur at the same time, i.e. are compatible. This variable stores one integer, and all groups who have this same integer are known to be compatible with each other. Depending on the analysis needs, they may be calculated together, in smaller combinations, or separately.
Public property Direction

Public property GroupName
The load group name. The maximum size is 126 characters.
Public property GroupType

Load combination is a process in which some simultaneously acting load groups are multiplied by their partial safety factors and combined with each other according to specific rules.

This variable stores one integer, and all groups who have this same integer are known to be incompatible with each other.
